Alphabe-Thursday – E is for EPCOT

Jenny MatlockI’m late, I’m late for a very important date! I’m too late to officially link up to Alphabe-Thursday, but I’m still going to do my “E” post. I really really want to get through the alphabet with this one!

One of these weeks I will come up with a theme for the letter and get out and take the pictures in that current week, but so far that has not happened!

When we lived in Orlando, EPCOT was pretty much our favorite Disney Park. I originally thought that at 6 years old when we arrived in Orlando that the park would not have for Tara, but I was very wrong!

Of course the first thing you see when you enter EPCOT is Spaceship Earth. (This picture is from 2006, the hand was removed in 2007). We always loved this ride. It too changed over the years from being sponsored by AT&T (my former employer) to Siemens who will sponsor until 2017. Unless the line was really long this was most times our first stop!

EPCOT hosts the Flower and Garden Expo every spring and the Food and Wine Festival every fall.
I always loved the topiaries at EPCOT.

The World Showcase was my favorite part of EPCOT. It was like taking a quick trip around the world, being able to experience a little bit of a several different cultures without leaving Florida!

This has always been one of my favorite photos! I don’t often get sentimental about Tara growing up (she is 16 now!) but when I look back at our Disney photos I do. Those six years we lived there were a very special time for us!

We made some really wonderful memories at EPCOT. This was the one park that I would also steal away for an occasional day by myself while Tara was in school!

The holidays were always beautiful at EPCOT (as well as all of Disney property). You could experience Christmas Around the World.

Some days we would ride the Monorail from Magic Kingdom to EPCOT and back without getting off!

Sometimes not everyone was happy about getting their photo taken! This was after a very trying Mother’s Day at EPCOT. My mother and great nephew Tyler were visiting, and the day did not turn out as special as I had hoped. NO ONE was in a good mood! One of those days were I set my expectations too high!

EPCOT has some pretty amazing fireworks each night. We did not make it to them often unless we had out of town guests!

Good Night EPCOT!
